Top 10 Team Success Secrets Revealed

"So Julie, we are talking about team-building and we were we pick this back up last week and the essence of our philosophy on teams is were being a succinct about it as possible. We are absolute Advocates of building teams, but we're Advocates of building teams that are designed not profitable from the onset not hoping and praying that there's profit left over after the transactions are you know have fluid through exactly. So last week we talked about the things that our team eroding Team Dodge straying making teams fail and we didn't want to keep it all that negative. But some of those things are obvious some of them are underlying until you discover them. So we went over all ten points that are a destructive and now we're going to talk about successful teams what actually makes for a successful team. So I'm going to jump right in if that's absolutely okay. So number one maintaining the magic number of lists wage. All times so successful teams maintain the magic number of listings at all times and know how to replace listings as they sell in a predictable duplicatable way lead generation is proactive prospecting based and marketing enhanced a lot to that one point your team me up for the real estate treasure map. I am indeed. And so what this says guys when she talks about the magic number, it's simply a formula that we both know created basically years ago and lived for years and lived for years. Right when we sold real estate cuz it's love you guys know Julie and I were selling between 100 and 200 houses per year for about ten years old over a hundred houses our first year in business in the early twenties. And so the real estate magic number is simply the number of listings you needed all times do meet or exceed your financial, you know, your goals your expectations your obligations, your commitments, the real estate magic number is not complicated to figure out but it is critical that you understand the concept because it's going to save you from a lot of the pitfalls that frankly ruin agents businesses and their potential reality. We want to give you the real estate magic number. Yep. To give you the real estate treasure map the real estate treasure map the essence of the treasure map the essence of what the treasure map is, it's our fill in the blank business and personal life plan. Its you got a business plan but really truly is a life plan and when you complete this the output is going to be a lot of important numbers the most important of which is knowing the number of listings you need at all times to meet or exceed your financial goals and expectations. So what I want you to understand is that you're going to most likely fall behind your actual potential if you get too distracted from anything other than focusing on the magic number of listings you need at all times. So you should receive this and it is free. You can buy this on the on Amazon, but I want to just give you this book. Okay, it's called The Real Estate treasure map. Just text 20-21 855-685-1055 text 2021 to 85685 10:45. And when you do we're going to text you back a link to not just the treasure map, but also a lot of other great books, including your 12 monthly generation guide and thinking Rich for Real Estate, which is an iteration of Napoleon Hill's great book Think and Grow Rich. Yes only it is practical and tactical translating how you actually use what you read in Think and Grow Rich. So let's say this point just for a second because when I have or you have an agent who's considering joining a team one of the first questions I asked if they've identified a team that they might want to join is does that team actually get listings? Because if they have no listings or very few listings or they're not, you know, established as a really Kick-Ass listing team. You should keep looking absolutely because they're not going to have enough for you but that goes actual circles back around to the you know, free previous points. We made by why teams failed. Yes. The biggest reasons is cuz there are all predicated on buying leads right teams will fail and you'll always fail if your business is dependent on being passive and bring your business. Nothing more to say might drop in K, but I want you to think about this guy's it's a very interesting concept Julie and I teach you to be proactively lead-generating first and and then based off. Want to look at marketing, right? There's proactively generation. There's passively generation or there's proactive marketing and there's passive marketing. Julie and I are always going to tell you to be proactive marketers and Lead generators first. And then if you choose not to be passive, then you can choose to be passive after you've mastered the Art and Science of being a proactively generator. I know that just sounds like I'm playing with words but it really is critically important and here's the essence of why it's important in listen to them. And if you've been in real estate for any amount of time you're going to end you're going to say hallelujah when I'm done saying this ready many of you are being taught incorrectly really bad business techniques where you're supposed to basically by your business and buying businesses in the literal sense from like over paying a referral fees, but it's also from social networking from branding any of those types of passive activities that are absolutely need that guy's of every real estate, you know, evangelist nowadays. They're all going to tell you work on your brand. They're all going to tell you to buy leads or all going to tell you clever Facebook ads and Instagram videos and hell even Clubhouse write them off. Always looking for ways to generate leads passively but here's the ultimate fallacy in that. It's unpredictable. You cannot predict when you're going to get something from the passive be we know that they digital generated off essentially internet generated at or I'm sorry leads are the worst quality leads that you can possibly get oftentimes. No better than just going to an old-school phone book and ripping out like ten pages and having an calling those leads the leads you get from online lead-generation our garbage and you guys know that not that people I'm not saying that I'm talking about lead quality. So be very clear about that. If your goal is to generate a bunch of leads that might someday hopefully within typically it's eighteen months three to four percent will actually transact. There's no guarantee. They're going to transact with you again. Does anyone think about this or tell you the truth about all this? No, they do not why cuz they're trying to sell Young Generation. But the biggest reason why we want you to be proactively generators is because this great analogy that actually are heard which I wish I would have thought of cuz it explains it so succinctly you're going to build a mansion. Yep. Engine is going to be your future. The manager is going to be represent the future of your family maybe but it's a literal Mansion right? It's your financial future. It's your potential reality going forward.

BTS #35 Excerpt: What is the Endocannabinoidome? w/ Vincenzo Di Marzo, PhD

"Absolutely. And for those listening that maybe don't have such a technical technical background on cannabinoids science. How would you describe the concept of the Endo cannabinoid Dome to somebody? Okay. So basically, you know with the word. Oh now we make new words containing the the the prefix the suffix off to identify very large system. So we have the Janome with the metabolism. We have the proteome and so on and so forth. So the Endo the endocannabinoid Ang Ang came in a way from you mentioned before the the study that roughly mechoulam in which we collaborating collaborated on the Entourage effect. So basically what we perceived is that in what we were measuring. In fact when we were measuring endocannabinoids is that this these two molecules and under minded to a g were accompanied by dog Plethora of other compounds and this compounds this metabolites were chemically and biochemically similar meaning that you know, an undermined into a Jeep belongs to you know, mm different families of metabolites. And these are the Ennis. I'll at the moment and the and the monocyte whistles some of which were already known. In fact, even one of two thousand kids, but even longer than that before the end of cannabinoids were discovered. So the nobody knew really how these molecules were acting so Rafi in a vegetative way that this is really is his main feature is creativity and Imagination thought about this. These are accompanying molecules that are there too practical to make make the two big actors look even more important than they are so it's an Entourage or you know, when politicians go around and they take with them a lot of birth. Of the accompanying people and that that's certainly part of the of the picture but that then we started realizing that these compounds in fact do have a molecules do have targets of their own. So the endocannabinoid if you wish is is a kind of evolution of the of the Entourage effect. Molecules like the NSA little minds or the Mona Lisa started being investigated receptors were being found and and this created of course exciting but also complications because you know, the pharmacologists ended the drug developers were the therapeutic drug developers were we're thinking okay, we can we can manipulate wage levels of the end of since they are so strongly involved in pathology. We can manipulate the levels of the endocannabinoids of an undermined and 2G in order to make more of these compounds where they're needed or to reduce the amount their amount where they're produced in an excessive that manner so you can do that by manipulating the the degradation of the biosynthesis of endocannabinoids, but then when it was found that and we found we and many others that and under might has the same biochemical Pathways as other in a salad all mines which have different receptors from the cannabinoid. Just this created a strong complication. We cannot really manipulate the levels of an endermite in this way without manipulating the levels of the other previously known as entering compounds but having an identity and and in the mechanism of action of independent from the endocannabinoids of their own so they can have been a dome is basically the the the bigger System including Napoleon undermine and 2G and their main receptors which are simply one CB2 but also bought some of the other receptors foreign under my tend to agree because these are two very promiscuous molecules unlike THC. This is one major difference from between between the endocannabinoids and the plants and and happy now it's dead or at least between between the endocannabinoid and THC and then it was found that in fact, even the biosynthesis and degradation of of these 2 khong Will not be only mediated by one or two enzymes there was a redundancy of biosynthetic and degrading enzymes and and sometimes it ingredient X will not degrade enzymes because they were simply converting an undermined and 2 g into molecules which had different receptors. And this is you know, this is this may seem strange but not two people like like me off at the bioactive lipids all their life, you know, all bye-bye activities are transformed into something different and come from something different with the different biological a month or so, and then there is the containers of an under my dental legited what we call the previously the Entourage compound which have their own receptors, even though they share with the endocannabinoid the same battle synthetical Pathways. And then finally there were other molecules which have different biochemical dead. Pathways as the end of cannabinoids better nevertheless, they're not congeneres. They're not like cousins not they're not like brothers and sisters but their cousins so you have a tennis I'll amide. And in fact when we collaborated with the and with with the with the other groups, we we found that in fact particularly with the group of my coworker the late my coworker. We we found that many many compound many amino acids could make a might with fatty acids and this could create an almost incredible number of new combinations between the 10 or 15 fatty acids and 20 amino acids. So just just imagine all the permutations and and so this compounds actually exist as as the group of other brands show as also recently investigated and and so it's really we're talking now about a huge number of chemical mediators. So the endocannabinoid open their containers their analogues, which may or may have not different similar biochemical Pathways normally have different receptors dead. We we talking about the several other targets that undermined into the G have Beyond City 162. We're talking about other enzymes. So we're talking about something something about more than a 250 chemical mediators more than fifty enzymes and and receptors and some of these receptors were actually known previously like the wage channels or the or the P bars and and and the interesting thing is that you know, of course we when the end of conversation became so big Then the next question was okay. THC is the only out of 100 and more a plan cannot be known that interact with the endocannabinoid system. What about maybe maybe if you don't look only at the end of can access them, but we look at the expanded n. Can have this Summit this and maybe the other cannabinoids with interact with the endocannabinoid home, even though they don't in fact with the entertainment system. This is true to a large

Macron wants France to have a seat at the top table

"President Emmanuel Macron is not unique among French leaders in entertaining grandiose notions about his country's singular place in the world charles-de-gaulle believed that France cannot be France without greatness and wrote of its exalted and exceptional destiny for Napoleon. The word impossible is not French. Emmanuel macron is a banker by background rather than a warrior, but he seems to share with his swashbuckling predescessors. The conviction that France is a great power and should behave like one in recent months alone macron has met with the Democratic opposition leaders of Belarus dispatched warships and fighter jets to Greece as it butts heads with Turkey and perhaps most startlingly invited himself to Lebanon within forty eight hours of the warehouse explosion which devastated. Beirut. In August, all of which is to say nothing Francis outreach economic and military to its former colonies in West Africa. Last month macron. told the UN General Assembly that the world as it is today cannot come down to a rivalry between China and the United States macron appears to have a firm idea of at least one of the nation deserving of a seat at the top table.

Confidence Affirmation

"I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes. is by Napoleon Hill who wrote the classic think and grow rich. He also wrote another lesser-known book called outwitting the devil and that's kind of what you're doing this week as you focus on confidence. And I WANNA mention to you that. As you go through this weeks series, you're going to be exploring. A letter every day that represents the focus for the day, and it's following the acronym believe. B. E. L. I. E. V.. E.. So yesterday was be for believe. And today is e for effort. So you're believe quest is all about that. It's all about putting forth effort that is going to stretch you out of your comfort zone a little more so that you become more comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. So you don't have to show up perfectly just simply have to show up. So. Put forth some effort to stretch out of your comfort zone. I want to share that. Last year at this time. I was going through Yoga teacher training. And now is such a hard experience for me because I happen to be with just a small group of people who were also receiving their teacher training. and. They were really competitive which was unusual because. We were becoming certified in your guy, which is union. But. For whatever reason, this group of people came together and I was not very good in the class fact, I hadn't studied much before I showed up because. We were going to learn. While we're there at the school. But the other people had studied they knew the different yoga alignment and postures really well. And I. Had learned. So many of these ancient. From my teachers in Asia. Where they were really a Censeo or a guide. and. There wasn't a book in fact, they didn't allow books are not taking because they wanted us to absorb the experience from one heart to another. Because we can have all the book knowledge or theory without really experiencing the full journey from a complete beginner's mind. To Improving To failing to moving forward this whole process. So when I would be paired with. People. And we would practice the different postures together. Sometimes of people would just tell me hey, that was terrible. And I remember in particular this one. Guy That I was. Practicing, with he was so disgusted by me that I didn't have every single pose memorized during a practice session. And I remember looking at him and telling him. I'm doing my best. This is what I can do right now right here in this class. This is a process were not required to know every single thing right now, we're supposed to learn it a little at a time because we're students. and. He just looked at me and said. Yeah okay. So. It was interesting that at the very end of our training, we had to give our final graded. Yoga class where we put everything together that we've been learning the whole time and it should be a nice seamless flow. And this was in a group of people which included the instructors as well as students as well as the other participants in the Yoga Teacher Training Program. So I did my presentation and I had the best time. It flowed very nicely. I enjoyed it and I hope the students did too. They said they did. But this guy who'd been so harsh with me he. Forgot some of the major poses he was supposed to show. The alignment. The flow. And he was really nervous. I felt great compassion for him because. I know he felt pretty confident previously throughout the course and then to go up there and have the greeted session be. Such a flop. I know he was disappointed. But I think that has to. Do with. Knowing where you are an honoring that not trying to pretend. That you're someone else or that. Your Life is better than it actually is just know that maybe you're going through a time where you're struggling and honor it.

Modest Mussorgsky: The Mighty Handful

"Hello welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. The mighty handful may sound like a rock band or a bad babysitting job and the mighty five may sound like a basketball team. But both of those were nicknames for a group of Nineteenth Century Russian composers interested in developing a Russian sound for classical music. Obviously, there were five of them. Mighty handful refers to five fingers. The ringleader of the mighty handful was mealy Bollock, a pianist and composer who wanted to promote nationalism in Russian music in music nationalism refers to a south. That's distinct Taylor country. Sometimes, that's done by using folk tunes, rhythms, or dance forms and a piece of music, but it can also mean including historical characters or legend from a region. While Akira, wrote an overture in which he put pieces of three Russian folk songs. Eventually Bala of became director of the Russian Court Orchestra. But for a while he quipped music and went to work for the Russian railroad in fact, every member of the mighty five held a nonmusical job at one time or another. Alexander Borodino was never a professional musician. He was a professor of chemistry. From the time he was a kid Borodino was very musical but he decided to study science instead he wound up founding the first Russian School of Medicine for women. After he met Bollock. The great cheerleader for Russian Music Borodino. Began composing. But since science and medicine took up most of his time, he didn't get a chance to finish very many pieces. One of the other members of the mighty hand full wound up putting Borodin's opera Prince Ebor into its final form, the man who cleaned up Laura Dean's music and music by quite a few other composers was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov. Rimouski. Korsakov was in the navy when he met up with Mealy, Bollock Kiro and decided that. Should be his life rimsky-korsakov quit the maybe to study composition after teaching himself to compose he wound up as a professor of composition at the new conservatory. In Saint Petersburg Russia rimsky-korsakov was great at orchestration knowing what instruments to assign to which lines of music in order to get the best sound. He finished a lot of pieces that some of his fellow Russians left unfinished and he also rearranged a lot of music some of which didn't necessarily rearranging. The. Last member of the mighty five was Cesar. Has An unusually UN Russian sounding last name because his father was French. In fact, he was a French military officer who decided to stay in Russia after being taken prisoner there while fighting with Napoleon's army. says. We started out in the military too but you guessed it after he met Mealy Bala. Cesar qe became a composer. Even, though he had no Russian ancestors, his mother was Lithuanian qe became a big champion of Russian music just like the other members of the mighty handful.

"True. It's a good question. See. Now, a lot of people would think removing. Two year old while in the state of immortality. is taking a life that's why I'm fro- immortal. I am right I'm pro immortal I. believe that I believe that immoral I believe that immortality starts at the conception. Of. The idea of immortality that's right and I believe anything besides a lot of people. A lot of these wing lunatics thinks that immortality doesn't set until about ten or eleven years old. But no. That's not what's in the Bible it does not. Know it in the Bible. It clearly states what I'm saying I don't even need to reveal the passage. WHAT'S THE PASSAGE Exactly. So. The baby coming to the cult in the first place was sort of the end of the cold. It kind of freaked out a lot of members share. We have a baby. So No. Let's all I. Don't know fuck it. I. Don't know who's got milk. What's going on here? Even shapers strongest followers that point where like I don't know we just jumping. The money had already started driving out up. Turns Napoleon Schaffer had actually known each other for quite a while. Napoleon had come to him in December nineteen, thirty nine. He wanted to go in on buying psychology magazine for two point five, thousand each. So Schafer then turn to a rich cult member for the money. And three years later in nineteen forty to the rich cult member realized that she had been swindled. And she charged Shafer with Grand Larceny. And of course, and they looked into it, it turns out the tune-ups shaper just kept the money and not bought the magazine and he ended up pleading guilty. Okay. He was given a five year sentence. The judge called him quote a thief a next clansman. Zone organization a spiritual faker, a religious hypocrite who's been a loose Prang on misguided women for too long. That's I. Meant that felt like a five year sentence. But it's interesting. So. They both have the same idea. So I the point had the I'll I'll just get kids idea and then shaffer does it. They're both named gene might clearly they were just working together on this whole thing. Yeah. They just went solo from. Napoleon moved to South Carolina and fell in love with. Sorry and fell in.

Sales Creativity Wins The Day!

"You're listening to the daily sales tips podcast and I'm your host Scott Ingram I've been thinking a lot about how important creativity is in sales lately, sexually Eddie buyers who initially got me thinking about this almost a year ago I was in New York City for a couple of client onsite meetings. You know back in the day when that was thing when we used to travel and get drinks together anyway Eddie is a consummate reader and a true student of. Sales. In fact, you can listen to our conversation together in episode seventy, nine of the sales success stories podcast. But as a fan of that show, he pointed out that many of the top performers I've interviewed are super creative think about it. How often do you get challenged in a sales process or have to find a different and unique way to break through with your prospecting because just doing more isn't going to be enough to get you where you WANNA be. I had some great sales leaders early in my sales career who taught me that you're GonNa hear? No probably a few times as you're working through an opportunity, they even suggested that a deal wasn't really real until you'd heard no at least once it's those knows they get you closer to what's really going on. It's your opportunity to go deeper ask more questions and get to the truth once you understand that then you get to be creative, you overcome those issues and perceived obstacles. How do you re engage the deal that's gone dark? How do you differentiate yourself and your offering to out shine your competitors all about creativity sales is rarely mechanical. Does it follow the same script? And the same process every time it's more like jazz, there's a lot of improvisation and creativity and it works best if you apply your own unique style and put a personal touch on things lately, I've run into a whole heap of different challenges and issues. But each time I've been able to take a breath think it through get creative and collaborate with my team and ultimately come up with something that was even better because of the challenge, and this is certainly true in a micro sense when it comes to a specific deal or a particular prospecting effort but it's also true in a very macro sense right now things are different. We're still not traveling and going to see. Our customers face to face and getting them all together in a room together to share our vision or create that vision together. So we have to be more broadly creative as well. What's relevant now, what's going to break through the noise and get people to act to make a change transform it all comes down to your creativity. You might get inspired by examples in the stories of plays other people have run, but it's up to you to find your own way through but we don't talk about this and think about this enough. We don't take the time to think I'm pretty sure that's actually one of the books that Eddie pulled out of his bag as we had that. Drink together, he pulls out this rather tattered very well read copy of Napoleon Hill's think rich. It's as simple as that. You have to take the time to think also call on the title of another book that have actually read, but I think the title pretty much says it all and that's Ryan holidays. The obstacle is the way you can't run away and hide from the obstacles and the challenges you've got to face them. You've got to think about them and then figure out if you're going to just run straight at it or maybe you go around it or over it or under it. But as the subtitle of that book suggests there's an art interning trials into triumph. Appreciate the stress lean into the pressure and the things that are in your way. That's where the real growth comes from. If you want to grow stronger, you don't get there by lifting lightweights you get there from putting stress on the system by breaking down your muscles so that they'll repair, adapt and grow. You don't get faster by running slow. You've got to push yourself to go harder than you probably want to go so that you get that training response that you're after

A Love Letter to Short Men

A Love Letter to Short Men

"DOT COM and at her website Carlin Betcha. Dot Com and here is a love letter to short men. Your height is not an issue unless you make it one. It's one of the most common openers I see on dating apps a man's height. It's usually the first thing men list and sometimes height is the only thing listed. Yep just height nothing else as if those two numbers measured in feet and inches contain multitudes. I understand why it happens. We are a society obsessed with looks we treat beauty and both genders as a currency attractive people make more money are viewed as more agreeable and somehow more valuable. This is part of the halo effect, a psychology term where we assign one single trait beauty to other characteristics kindness. Personally I have never seen a woman who cares about height in fact, I find short men hot, not all of them but many. Let. Me Tell you a not hot short man's story. I recently wanted to date with a five foot five inch guy within fifteen minutes of our meeting. He ass is my height a problem. It was not until he mentioned it. I had not even looked at the height he listed on his profile. I then spent the next twenty minutes assuaging his fragile ego and explaining why many women like short men it was exhausting at one point I think he read the weariness in my slumped shoulders and tried to self correct. I'm only asking because you're right about love and sex. Sure if you went on a date with a dermatologist, would you ask her to examine the fungus between your toes? I didn't say that, but I wanted to my sarcasm is a feral beast. Then, there are the many many short guys who lie about their height. You know who you are. I once went on a date with a guy claiming to be five foot eight inches. He was five foot four inches. That's a four inch lie. If we're keeping track I wore three inch heels for that date that put me at five feet eight inches. Greeted him with a hug. This was pre pandemic days his head landed on my chest. Awkward. For most women height is not a deal breaker but lying is So. Here it is short men the painful truth your height is not the Lady Boehner killer. You think it is it your lack of confidence that makes women's ovaries shrivel up and never want to go on another date again, I have dated a lot of sexy short men and they all had one thing in common nothing to prove when Tom Cruise five foot seven inches was sexiest man alive multiple times. Did anyone add a footnote sexy for a short Guy Hell? No. When Bruno Mars five, foot five inches shakes what his momma gave him are women getting out there measuring. Sticks Adriano. then. There's Napoleon. Napoleon. Never had complex about his height nor was he even really that short you can feel his confidence oozing out of the impatient love letters. He wrote to Josephine one read a kiss on your heart and one much lower down much lower. Nowhere in that letter, will you find a postscript saying unless my height makes you not in the mood? Yet Napoleon somehow got his name attached to the height inferiority complex known as the Napoleon. Complex. The Napoleon Complex states that short men tend to be more aggressive lie more and try to compensate for their short stature by being exceptionally cruel. But researchers found the opposite to be true. One study from Nyu phone short men are thirty two percent less likely to divorce than tolman. The study also found women married to short men reported greater happiness and short men did more housework than tolman. Yes. There is a correlation between happiness and a freshly floor. Clearly short men are doing something, right? I pulled over twenty of my most dateable girlfriends for this article I asked the same question. Are you attracted to short men most had similar answer? It depends on the guy that's a nice way of saying that is not the package. It's the meat inside. So

"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.

"Russian opposition leader Alexia Vanni is reportedly unconscious in a hospital today and there are concerns that he was poisoned. He got sick on a flight in his plane had to make an emergency landing in the Russian city of. Joining us now is the BBC's Sergei Gorriak in Moscow. What is known about? What happened to Vanni? What would we know from now is that Navali is in stable but grave condition he's still in a coma is held in the hospital in the city of Ohm skits the middle of the Siberia and Navan his wife and his supporters came already from Moscow oems but the doctors there don't let them to go inside and to see what happens with Napoleon. Is, he also, we know that Navales supporters. Novalis. Team is going to transfer him in hospital in Europe probably that will be Hanover in Germany to be treating there because they don't believe Russian doctors and they believe more in medicine like broad But now his condition is critical and he's not ready to be transported which is why he's still there in. Now, he is forty four years old. He is a staunch critic of president. Putin, tell us more about who he is while for the last ten years broke Smith Lena has been the main opposition figure in. Russia he's the vocal critic of Putin. He's his thorn in a back. I can say so and he started as an opposition blogger right in about corruption cases among officials or businessmen somehow connected linked with the government they after he. Held a very successful campaign during the elections in two thousand eleven and these campaign against The United Russia party that's the main ruling party in this country. Made this party almost lose the elections in the State Duma. That's the parliament Navan only raised like lots of people to. Come on the streets they were mass rallies like hundreds of thousands of people in Moscow and Saint Petersburg and other cities who were protesting against United Russia the body which Nevada libels as a party of Crooks and thieves after that he tried. To run for mayor of Moscow. And dirt even tried to participate into the presidential election in two, thousand, eighteen. But he was barred from running because or was convicted in embezzlement He denies any wrongdoing. He thinks that these cases criminal case was political. He has a very successful anti corruption foundation which does a big and very A. Very good investigations on different politicians and Putin's France out He even made a very successful investigation on which means that if that's been A. Ex. President. Of Russia and Prime Minister after the that investigation specifically in two thousand seventeen, they will also mass rallies in Moscow. So there are lots of reasons, for Kremlin, not to love Nirvana as you can see. Well, and if indeed he was poisoned, this would not be the first Putin critic to be targeted. There's a long list not at all but what many experts here in Russia's say what I should agree with that such thing as only spoiling by. Either security services either some Putin's men could only happen with Putin's approval and. Now it there is no reason for Putin to try to put navalny in hospital or even to kill him because are no very prominent political campaigns running. No very big elections in Russia actually wouldn't have only was doing. Siberia. He was housing small campaigns for. Local elections in some Siberian cities where his supporters are running for some places in a city parliaments or regional parliaments, which is why still very puzzled about who and why would want Nevada to be poisoned and crime in spokesperson injury Paskov ready told that Kremlin wishes Nevada. Speedy recovery and they also told that they would help if Navales family would want him to be treated abroad.

Beethoven's Symphonies

"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin Fransius of Haydn is known as the father of the symphony because he took that form of orchestra music and perfected it. But no one changed the symphony more than Ludvig Fund Beethoven. The First Symphony Beethoven wrote definitely sounds like it was influenced by Haydn's music. By the time Beethoven wrote his second symphony tragedy had struck, but you'd never know it from the music. The Summer Beethoven wrote his Second Symphony was the summer he realized he was going death. Instead of letting his misery out in his music Beethoven put it all into a letter at the end of which he said he wasn't going to let deafness stop him from being a musician. When Napoleon Bonaparte started conquering Europe Van was a huge fan because he thought Napoleon was going to help ordinary people. Beethoven planned to dedicate his third symphony to Napoleon. But then Napoleon. Crowned himself emperor proving that he was more interested in power than people. Beethoven was furious and changed the name of his symphony number three to ero- Ika the heroic symphony. Beethoven's Fourth Symphony has some very dancing music. Sometimes. The fourth kind of gets lost in the shuffle between the Aurora and the even more famous symphony that came next Beethoven's fifth. Avenue. The man who wrote the first biography of Beethoven claimed that the composer meant the opening at the to be knocking at the door. But a student of Beethoven's thought his teacher had nothing more faithfully mind than a bird call from a kind of sparrow a yellowhammer. Whether or not Beethoven included a bird in his fifth. He certainly put birds and a lot more nature into his six, which even has a nature nickname, the pastoral or pastorale symphony. No birds at all in Beethoven's symphony number seven just rousing music. In Beethoven's Eighth Symphony something is clearly ticking. More about that next week, which brings us to Beethoven's ninth a piece that completely changed how people thought of symphonies. No one had ever used singers in a symphony before, but Beethoven put plenty of them into the last movement of the peace in his famous. Ode to Joy, with words by German playwright. Friedrich Schiller. I one person seems it. And eventually a whole chorus joins in. People all over the world know and love Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. When the Berlin Wall came down, they celebrated with a huge concert featuring Beethoven's ninth. I've been sung it in China where audiences went crazy next week the mechanical object in Beethoven's symphony number eight and a lot more pieces of music describe inanimate objects

The fourth kind of gets lost in the shuffle between the Aurora and the even more famous symphony that came next Beethoven's fifth. Avenue. The man who wrote the first biography of Beethoven claimed that the composer meant the opening at the to be knocking at the door. But a student of Beethoven's thought his teacher had nothing more faithfully mind than a bird call from a kind of sparrow a yellowhammer. Whether or not Beethoven included a bird in his fifth. He certainly put birds and a lot more nature into his six, which even has a nature nickname, the pastoral or pastorale symphony. No birds at all in Beethoven's symphony number seven just rousing music. In Beethoven's Eighth Symphony something is clearly ticking. More about that next week, which brings us to Beethoven's ninth a piece that completely changed how people thought of symphonies. No one had ever used singers in a symphony before, but Beethoven put plenty of them into the last movement of the peace in his famous. Ode to Joy, with words by German playwright. Friedrich Schiller. I one person seems it. And eventually a whole chorus joins in. People all over the world know and love Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. When the Berlin Wall came down, they celebrated with a huge concert featuring Beethoven's ninth. I've been sung it in China where audiences went crazy

Ludwig van Beethoven

"Kids. Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn Germany in seventeen seventy Beethoven's father was a singer who worked as a court musician in Bonn but he wasn't very reliable. So by the time Beethoven was a teenager, he was supporting his family as a court musician. Beethoven. Played Violin Viola and most of all keyboard instruments. The prince who employed Beethoven sent him on a trip to Vienna, which was the center of musical activity in Vienna Beethoven played for Mozart who was so impressed that he said to his friends, keep an eye on him. Someday he'll give the world something to talk about. Once, he'd had a taste of Vienna. There was no keeping Beethoven in Bonn he moved to the Anna where he intended to study with. Mozart but by then Mozart had died. So Beethoven studied with Haydn instead. Heiden was a pretty easy going person while Beethoven was Moody and Intense. So their student teacher partnership didn't last very long just long enough for some of what Haydn was good ad like string quartets to rub off on Beethoven. Beethoven quickly became known all over Vienna as a wonderful musician at first he was mostly famous for his skill as a pianist. But when Beethoven was just thirty years old he realized he would have to give up his career as a concert pianist because he was going death. After a while Beethoven couldn't hear an extra well enough to stay together with it when they played and eventually he couldn't even hear himself play his own piano. But Beethoven, was such a genius that even though he couldn't here with his ears, he could still hear music in his head so he kept right on composing. Aw. In Beethoven's Day, composers were considered servants but Beethoven refuse to be treated like a servant by his patrons members of the nobility who paid him for his work. He knew he was unique and said so as he wrote to one of his patrons, there are and will be thousands of princes. Is One Beethoven. Beethoven wrote nine glorious symphonies more about those and his piano music in coming weeks. He also wrote Chamber Music Ballets Religious Music Songs, and one opera Beethoven wasn't afraid to change his music when he didn't think it worked this is one of four tries to get the overture to his opera just. Between the French revolution and Napoleon's Wars Beethoven lived through a lot of political changes. In fact, He created a revolution of his own, a musical one. Beethoven took the graceful elegant forms that Mozart and Haydn had used and change them into something powerful and passionate.

"That egg on our face again. Again. And again. Russia at this point. Has a peace treaty with France, but they're struggling financially. The system of trade that Napoleon institutes basically forbids countries to trade with Britain. Russia disregards this order in trades with them, and there are some other territory disputes, but the real reason for the invasion is for one big tough guy to show the other big tough guy who's. So on. twenty-fourth, Eighteen, twelve, two hundred and eight years ago. Today Napoleon starts his invasion. Okay, all right. Does anyone else just think we should have to say history out loud a few times a year? As we all. Get getting. Square to recite it. Start to finish every year yeah. All wrap voting. A. Now, there's lots of different numbers for the size of the French forces. It varies between half a million to six hundred, thousand of seen even seven, hundred and fifty thousand. A this grand army is it's called. It was stocked up to last about thirty days with provisions, and as I mentioned before. That's really not much of a problem. When Napoleon conducted this kind of military activity in central Europe is, horses could live off the land. He's in for just a slight surprise in Russia though. You don't when we think of Russian president picture a fat Guy No. Such a dumb move going to Russia right away like that. Everybody knows you start with Australia there. There's another. And then you move over to Africa South America. Risk. The bridge. Army, the size is also an ecological disaster. I mean you have a military force of the population? This is a modern day Atlanta marching across the land. The lack of clean water pretty much immediately creates a dysentery epidemic. In fact, it wasn't the only illness that would wreak havoc on the French forces. They had to contend with typhus, influenza and Diptheria Oh and the elements and the lack of supplies, but we'll get there. Yeah, no to be clear. The guys who like died from Diptheria right up front the lucky ones. and. See so when I read your essay the first time I thought you, said elephants, instead of elements and I got like. Rose. Do Hannibal next week for you. I was I was pretty jazzed. Only time we've read an elephant. We killed it on this show. Right I don't think. We murdered at send. You know what that's what they did.

He's in charge of one hundred, thousand, one, hundred thirty thousand Russian soldiers, so he's outnumbered about four to five to one and it at at a certain point, he's replaced by the czar, but really he's the reason that Napoleon fails that overconfidence and under planning and the fact Napoleon is French, but. One of the reason because he knew how to minimize disadvantages and maximizes advantages and the biggest advantage had was that. Russia is not terribly hospitable. Well I right, but like French rudeness didn't slow down the Nazis. Not Terribly hospitable. That is the nicest way to say shit whole country. I think. So the grand army. Starts this expedition in summer, so they're packed for hot weather, but they weren't prepared for how ungodly hot it was going to get. The heat on the trail was oppressive. They never give an exact temperature, but they use words like stifling an intense. The troops also weren't ready for the temperature swing between night and day the temperature drop like a rock when the sun went down in the army wasn't prepared for that the also not happy. Again. You know when that Sun goes down. Just a Russian. The temperature swings I guess were really dramatic. Like yeah, yeah, so it's really it's a dramatic swing.

Horses drop from exhaustion. Men lost their boots as soon as it was autumn.

But there isn't a Polian and he's in his tent on campaign and and he takes a piece of cheese and puts it over his nose and goes Josephine. I remember like I didn't get it at the time. Of course I but Through my research here again for this episode I stumbled across that commercial. Remember this Oh with again boost. The commercials was selling cheese. That's a weird commercial. I I thought it was a trip and a half. I was reading sticks at your by but I don't think it would have by that. She I I let girls and cheese after watching Ching that I'd wanted neither of them. He had a pet name for her downstairs. Mix Up the Baron Day Koeppen. Nobody knows why the hell he called her genitalia. That no clue and she did something something in bed called zigzags which is another mystery. As far as what the Hell Batman all these little code stuff that they had just like how people do now they have a little pet names so they have little acumen with at one time. It's super cute. But there's trouble in paradise. Napoleon's ladders also revealed that his wife didn't answer him quite as quickly as he would've liked so they'd have these gnarly arguments via snail mail until Napoleon. Here's Josephine had started hooking up with young men of the sexy variety we and so. He writes the super angry letter to her about her affair which the British intercept and then widely published embarrassed most British thing ever. It is Wilson same thing. People love publishing naughty letters in Britain. So it's hilarious military tactic. This was before Harriet. Ah this predated her. So Napoleon has this letter published with all of these intimate details about his personal life. What's going on with him and his wife and his marriage uh not stoked but he goes fine and he proceeded to have no less than twenty one affairs while he's on this campaign? Yeah Retaliation Plus Zero Frisk. I kind of assumed US already. You seem already that he's not going to be faithful to anybody. Comes with the territory. I'm not saying it's right. I'm saying the expectation you don't expect us is to be faithful. Maybe maybe maybe not like. Well that's what I wonder is. I'm not even Hitler but is there any royal person who has ever have been faithful. Is there any leader. That's ever been faithful. Is that just think Hitler was either. Yeah because we assume that just comes with the territory. Celebrity ruler ruler. Pick a lot of these guys to have one track minds. There's just so much shit like I can't imagine. Being any of these dictators sounds exhausted. You know there's pushes somebody constantly that need your attention it's like renting a business you're on you're on the clock time but it's a nation state which they run like businesses. Yeah that's the that's the mentality again. I'm not saying that's right but the mentality of these people is. It's their business so used to doing this. Mostly just to get back in her though. Yeah Yeah I think this is kind of retaliation fares before this. I think it was kind of like. She awoken that passion in him. He got obsessive over her. She was like chill l. out right and then he did it out of retaliation just because of the way that he approached sex before her that change after. Do you think it was mechanical. It was do you think I think with her was not mechanical. Would I think with the retaliation had a motivation. So that sex was going to be more. I don't even think intimates the right word but I'm not a forceful is not the word I'm looking for either. But I think he would have very aggressive sex because it's angry to speculating. That's total speculation. Relation he could have been from what I gathered. He was actually really good like as far as taking care of his mistresses go. He made sure when he was done dating somebody they yeah they were set up. Kids were taken care of. He legitimized a lot of his bastards to it really was he actually. That was something he was really passionate about with slake the father's role the man's role the husband's role in the home kind of a thing as misogynistic and backwards as he was for you know now with the knowledge that we have he was he he really did. Make sure that everybody was taken care of the time who's right he was he was. That was a stand up thing at the time to do to make sure your mistresses were paid. They were taking care of kids. Were taken care of when they were done dating. He made sure they got married to somebody. Reputable who could take care of them. Good people so in that regard standup guy so he is having all these affairs that resulted in several children. Like I said But the most interesting out of these he's tens of affairs was by far his relationship with Paulina for a now. Pauline husband actually brought her along on this campaign. The which you weren't allowed to do so. She was disguised in uniform and she was undetected amongst all these guys for fifty four days which is impressive. That is now Napoleon's in Egypt so they roll up and go to Alexandria where he's hanging out and the police finds out that there's an officer's wife in tow. So he reacts by going like. Hey Pauline stay here in Egypt with me while your husband goes back to France on this mission. I'm sending him on date so how Goes on this mission. He gets back. Haven Pauline get divorced like immediately and Pauline earned the nickname cleopatra from the scandal. The episodes and now a word from our sponsors back to the show so Josephine. Napoleon eventually meet up but their marriage marriage was short-lived. Unfortunately as Emperor Napoleon had to be concerned about producing an heir to the Throne Josephine for whatever reason introducing her. She couldn't get pregnant she was infertile. She had a botched abortion when she was younger. She was under a lot of stress with this. Who knows but she? She couldn't and get pregnant in Napoleon's careers best interest the couple decided to divorce so he could remarry and provide a shoe. Sounds like Napoleon tied to move they were org however both really broken up about it and they cried during the doors. Proceedings and Josephine was very dutiful about the whole thing. Like she's recorded. You're saying with the permission of my dear an August husband. I declare that no longer preserving any hope of having children to satisfy the political need for an Air Erin France I proudly offer him the greatest proof of love and devotion ever given to a husband on this earth and pulling himself was devoted to her for the rest of her life and he allowed her to keep her very much beloved living quarters that Chateau and she continued to have have a nice life for the most part when he found out she died some years later when he was in exile and he was remarried and all that he locked himself in his bedroom for two days and wouldn't come out and when he died years and years and years later supposedly the very last thing he said was her name. He said just being I I think he really loved her Rosebud. Joseph e need drops the snow an appalling ended up remarrying marie-antoinette's great niece the nineteen year old Austrian. Marie Louise and she wasn't too pleased with the arrangement. Considering during her great aunt had her head lopped off in France and Napoleon had been leading big ass military campaigns against her country for years and years. So Marie Louise said and I quote just just to see the man would be the worst form of torture so not stoked on Napoleon. But she doesn't really have a choice so she now she gets her that all she was. Yeah difference it does matter like sorry. Well sorry not sorry there. It wasn't all that bad though. Fortunately for her. That's a rarity as far as arranged Rome heritage's go most of the time. They're not very pleasant but after their wedding. Napoleon seemed to grow on her a little bit. She wrote a letter to her father saying you know he loves me very much. I respond to his love sincerely really. There's something very fetching very eager about him. That is impossible to resist weird athletics on your dad throwing that out there now maybe. I don't think it's that graphic graphic loves me very much. I respond to his love sincerely so I really do like I. There is something very fetching and very eager about him that it's impossible to resist Seattle bike gutter because the chef probably most people. Oh I think times like right with that really totally mean letters were very passionate really took their time. It's not like yeah all this was gonna be something that you had to send out. They were going to get it in six weeks. It's like you're actually absolutely put a lot of ha ha. I would imagine it would be something more. Because of the way it wasn't a quick text message it would be something like that is amused me. Far greater than any parlance that has ever been uttered to this time flowery flowery language through unfortunately for Napoleon and likely fortunate for the rest of Europe. Things started falling apart around this time that he did remarry which was like eighteen. O Seven eighteen tennis Portugal Spain called Britain.

"PODCASTS shoutouts as well as coming attractions ooh exciting. So today we're talking about Napoleon Bonaparte apart who's hugely obscure. Nobody has ever heard of funny enough. I know very little about Polian. Never interested me so all I know is that he wasn't actually really that short and that he was dictator for a while in France. That's about it. Those are both true things. He wasn't that Short. He was average height. Yeah he was like five seven at the time that was like your average guy. Now that's a little bit shorter. I think five ten is average version so Napoleon Bonaparte Bonaparte. You was actually an Italian guy. Who got his start in the French military and worked his way up through the ranks during the French revolution until they ceased power as emperor of the entire country music? He was then after that he took over a good chunk of the rest of Europe until it collapsed in eighteen. Fifteen a lot of people already know he was pretty big important controversial a military guy. A lot of people already know he had a reputation for being into some weird sexual. She has no no. You didn't okay. Well you may also not know is he may have been the original Fedora wearing self-proclaimed nice guy with a massive chip on his shoulder. Those guys kind of the VIBE. I was getting getting reading a shit. What kind of a deal? I don't know a lot of disdain towards women. We'll find out more now like we were talking about. He's actually an Italian talion guy. He was born on a little island in the Mediterranean called Corsica and he was a big time nationalist who wanted an independent Corsica from France. Funny enough off. He was so into Corsica before he decided to take over the European continent he actually penned. A history of the island is a romance novel before he decided that writer. Life was not for him now. His family was minor nobility which meant their financial situation wasn't too shabby and therefore Napoleon had more opportunities than many people that were born on the island. So they were. The kings of Corsica is doing. They were doing pretty well. Fish while upon video total big fish small pond kind of a thing. Napoleon was supposedly a sweetheart until he turned two years. There's old which is when his mom brought the hammer down. He was really hyper so she exercise some firm discipline while lavishing affection and attention on his brother. Why would they do this so great? He wasn't Napoleon. Apparently okay. That's all it took. This may have been the start of his famous Napoleon complex because he responded by becoming more more aggressive and more approval seeking he even once said the future. Destiny of the child is always the work of the mother. Math at that ain't the truth on what is so. He's nine years old and he goes to school. In France eventually goes to military school on a scholarship after that now being from the island Corsica he only spoke. Doc Corsican and Italian and didn't start learning French until he was ten and despite becoming fluent language he had a really heavy accent and he couldn't spell. Oh Shit so the other kids would just bully him relentlessly and this only contributed to his dushi tendencies. So moral of the story. Don't bully the arrogant weird kid kid because next thing you know he'll start conquering her up. In the we have an emperor again he was also a great student. One Guy who did his examination said Napoleon and I quote has always always been distinguished for his application mathematics. He's fairly well acquainted with history and geography. The boy would make an excellent sailor so he goes to military Harry School and to his credit he finishes two years worth of work in one year because his finances were dramatically decreased. When his dad passed away Napoleon was in the military? A great time for ambitious kind of people. French Revolution was happening in full force opportunities for advancement those damn birds scooters. They're fucking everywhere. ooh Bit to ride one of those speakers. Conquer Europe things are kind of in the gutter. Napoleon becomes a war hero and general eventually cleans up these big ass wins against Russia Austria and the Holy Roman Empire until he becomes emperor France in his control over just about everything else also on the continent to huges profited from the chaos. Right he is. He's an opportunist really what I found really interesting about his rise to power is he didn't study his predecessors assessors he straight up just said just give me lucky generals because that means they're seeing an opportunity and they're going for it about two one on my team lucky generals which is agree point to bring up if you ever have the experience required for a job but not a degree ask for the dirty bits Polian got to set the scene and I got a paint a picture here of the sky because you know the whole point of the show we gotta Fedora Wary of her and his attitudes towards women and sex from what they gathered. Go Way back to his inferior already complexes from childhood he also may have had one foot in the closet. There's nothing definitively proven but Napoleon did say say that. Whenever he saw a good looking dude he would feel something? This is a quote I in the loins and then in another place I will leave on named talking about is is but that was what I was asked zooming. He had also been known for chastising. A classmate for being gained school while at the same time. Being on really good terms is with the gay deputy who ruled France while he was gone. So you combine now with how awkward misogynistic he seemed you might start to think. Maybe he was trying to keep his sexuality under under APPs or is this more English propaganda Austrian propaganda. This is more like directly from the source like quotes observations of those next next to him. That's why it's like security. Maybe statistics alone suggests the vast majority of people are on a sliding scale as far as gender preference goes so I'm assuming he was probably by whatever his sexuality was he was misogynistic and awkward. Never Either Germain Day style once asked. It's no Polian who he considered the best kind of woman. You responded she who has the most children because women were machines for making babies. WHOA quite the quote? Donald Trump tweet. Yeah and also pissed them off in regards to how involved women were during the French Revolution in his mind. Women didn't belong in the streets protesting getting getting shit done. They belonged in as he said the seclusion of the home while he was not a shy man he also believed that men always the final say when it came to marital rates. So I'm assuming he wasn't friends with Olympic Day Gouzer Mary Shelley probably not and as far as him. Being Awkward Goes Nineteenth Century French rider stall once wrote when a lady was announced he would request her without looking up from his work table to go and wait for him in bed later with a candle stick in his hand he would show her out of the bedroom and then promptly go back to his table to continue reading correcting and signing those unless decrees the essential part of the rendezvous had not lasted three minutes to dismiss these gallant visitors after a mere three minutes of his time to go on signing decrees and often without so much as in buckling his sword struck these ladies as an outrageous procedure mechanical right. It seems. He's very mechanical. Like he was just kind of like getting get out. You know it was route like to clean out his nose. Totally blow the ultimate bureaucrat. I feel like that is that the ultimate bureaucrat is the ultimate bureaucrat. Just like getting bogged down under the paperwork. I feel like he would have had them. Sign a release in an NDA before you sleep. What's Napoleon you gotta go down to the HR and get four five dash see one? He likes to know they did a bunch of paperwork. I did you fill out form. Cute ash one. Five nine eight Jess triplicate. Oh how did you save the pink copy for your records scares me filing system. So Napoleon lost his virginity when he was eat teen at the famed Palais royal a former royal palace. That sounds like it was turned into the Moulin Rouge Allen Nicole Kidman Crazy parties debauchery Galore and he was so fucking awkward. He went up to one of the prostitutes and was like damn. It's cold out tonight. I am so cold. Are you cold. No now that's good. So where'd you get your address. How'd you come to find yourself in Paris? How did you lose your virginity? See I was GonNa say normal questions will awkward up until that last one. That's Oughta beaten you prostitute right. You know it's like going. It's the same thing as like going up to your cashier and starting to chat them up. It's like I'm here for business. Let's go along so she's like doing this or not. Basically like she gets tired of beating around the Bush so they have sex and the next morning he writes about it in his journal. Like you mentioned. It was very mechanical. And he basically said had the sex not great gonNA keep trying like it was the science experimental way weird and supposedly. He didn't have a whole lot of luck in that arena until he met the woman who would become his wife Josephine Day Baron and they began their famous passionate and by all standards extremely unhealthy relationship shortly thereafter. The excited to hear about this. It's this is good stuff when these to get married Napoleon's twenty-six and she's a thirty two year old widow with a couple of kids that it seems like an odd pair. What was he like Emperor of fresh? Yeah he's like he's up there in the ranks this point. He's he's big big potatoes now. Josephine's husband had been executed excuted during the French Revolution. And she was savvy enough to get out of prison the hopeless some friends and in front of Napoleon because she was great at utilizing her connections. That's how how she made her way throughout life was just who she knew and making friends and getting her. She was very calculated very meticulous with everything. Good pair go calculating she was. I don't know that she was so mechanical but they they are kind of pot is we'll see over so biographer Andrea Steward. wrote in the rose of Martinique sneak a life of Napoleon's Josephine that she changed her appearance incessantly. Giving her lover's the illusion of infinite variety. She also understood the importance of the settings of her romantic encounters. She paid meticulous attention to the design of her bedrooms evident. The Rue sheltering and in later palaces multiplied supplied the images of their love and created the illusion of an orgy sexy so the couple finally meet and she introduces herself. Like hi I'm marie-josephe Rose Tauscher Deloitte. Rg but I just go by rose. It's such a pleasure to finally meet. You have heard so much about you and Polian goes. Your name is rose. Does I hate it. I'm calling you Josephine. From that moment on she went by Josephine. She's like okay. Feed it is just just a few days after their wedding. Quick skips parts of their. So they get married you get married and just a few days. After her wedding Napoleon Ryan leaves on a campaign. Now are awkward little scam. Napoleon had finally had his sexual awakening the much more experienced unlikely. Excellent Lover Lover Josephine. She probably was. She had a past as being a mistress. Yeah she knew she was doing bed. She's really good at it. Symposiums finally enjoying being sex. Good for him. I'm happy.

Fucking history turns out it's important to know some shit about why do we have vaccinations antibac- Sers? So we don't die of shit like diptheria you fucking emotionally thinking idiot. God, dammit, okay. On September seven to eighteen twelve the French emperor overseas. The bloodiest battle of the Russian campaign at the battle of Borodino not far from Moscow. The village aboard. Zito was the best place for the Russian army to make their stand. They weren't going to lose. Moscow without a fight. When the smoke cleared the losses on both sides were immense Russian lost around forty thousand troops while the French loss in estimated thirty to forty five thousand thirty hundred thousand most historians put the official number at around seventy thousand dead in just one battle by September fourteenth. Napoleon watched the Russians burn three quarters of their own city of Moscow to make sure the French didn't have enough food or supplies that they needed to stick around. Bottom part was forced to retreat around twenty one to twenty three thousand soldiers think about how many he had brought despite the French empire's, heavy losses. He quickly. Recruited more men now fought Germany is not done lose a couple hundred thousand dudes, but whatever Malecki Biden several battles were fought between French forces in an allied army that would grow to over three hundred sixty thousand men not to be outdone by the battle aboard Dino the battle of left's vague Lipsey in Germany, also known as the battle of nations would go on to be the bloodiest battle in European history until World War One nearly six hundred thousand. Soldiers are involved. Well, over half a million men fighting ends up with between eighty and one hundred twenty seven thousand total casualties over two thousand artillery weapons fired over two hundred thousand rounds of ammunition. Napoleon's forces had thirty eight thousand men killed or wounded and another fifteen thousand were captured this loss really put a dent in Napoleon's invincible, God king, self-described spiritual successor to Charlemagne persona might soon the fight.

And he's supposed to be paid two million francs annually and be given a guard of four hundred men what a great way to get kicked out of your country. Like, I would love to lose like that.

"Sneak onto the battlefield at night and recover used cannonballs. Right. The bigger the canon, though, the more extra money to get France would eventually abandon the siege. Head back to Egypt. This would be Napoleon's first major land defeat. I mean, obviously, the British kicked his ass say hands up having to leave many of his sick and wounded on them behind an Oscar and legend has on the way back to Joffe. He may have also decided to poison other sick and wounded soldiers right there. These guys are kind of fucking slowing us down. Let's say let's poisoning. We can't history not clear on whether Bonaparte had his troops poison secretly. Or if the volunteer to drink the poison, I hardly doubt that or even if there was poisoned because history is tricky bastard when you deal with propagandists and then Napoleon returns to Egypt as if he had won the battles. Right. He knew he knew how to spin shit. He spoke of only victory in the Middle East. You know, many French citizens. They bought his words when you travel back to France, many French were enthralled by the young general. He brought his cool antiquities treasures. You know, it was like his mythical trip to this land of pyramids and the junction God's later. Bonaparte wouldn't meet his would admit gives me his defeat and author was a big disappointment and an important loss. He later say if I had not been defeated knocker, I would have conquered all of the east during his time around the plague at least according to legend, and again, it's hard to tell what's lead. And what's not in the story, but supposedly Napoleon showed some serious fearlessness to his troops. Or I guess ignorance at a medical hospital in Syria, he declared that the cause of the play was fear, and that the cure was courage. He demonstrated his courage by picking up a dead soldier from the floor a soldier who was covered in busted open play boils. And he carried him to a more suitable rest in place. You know, it's not about fine. Dude. He did know how to inspire. He also clearly did not know dick about the plague or who had never done that when Napoleon returned to Egypt. He learned that France was in political chaos. The French revolution was about to hand him the keys to the castle. Now in Baltimore. Part knew it problem was he couldn't get his army home without his guy day of ships fucking chips. So he just snuck away by himself. He didn't tell us army or even replacement officer. He was going to be leaving and heading back to Europe didn't even tell his mistress. A letter in just hop boat back to France. And if you're wondering what happened to the French army left behind they would eventually be brought back to France by the British army after defeat in eighteen o one. Back in France is by ditching his army in Egypt Napoleon. He's received as a hero. He's a legend super famous has plays. And paintings commissioned about his victories.
